Lactobionic Acid is an oxidized form of lactose extracted from milk, and is a cosmetic ingredient that can be used safely in all skin types because it is naturally produced in the body. Lactobionic Acid (LBA) consists of a glycolic acid molecule and a galactose molecule. and it’s known to be the mildest exfoliating ingredients such as AHA BHA.
In terms of exfoliating effectiveness, LBA(Lactobionic Acid) has a larger molecular size than Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) and such size differences make LBA slowly absorbs into the skin and stand as a hypoallergenic exfoliator, namely knowns as a third-generation for exfoliating which gets absorbed into the skin without irritating the skin.
LBA(Lactobionic Acid) has a large number of hydroxyl groups, which makes it absorb moisture in the atmosphere and form a natural gel matrix on the skin. At the same time, LBA not only works to exfoliate the skin but work to moisturize the skin long-term which keeps the skin softer, brighter, and healthier.
GF Fermentech's BioLactobionic Acid is a 100% natural material produced through the proprietary fermentation process. Its clinical test in human subjects has proven its excellence in exfoliation, moisturizing, skin barrier improvement, and wrinkle improvement. LBA is a next-generation skincare ingredient that could replace AHA and BHA.
The efficacies of Lactobionic Acid
Improvement of skin barrier function
Using 3D-skin Keraskin, a human skin model observing the expression of Biomarker by IHC
※ Positive Biomarker : Keratin 10 , Loricrine , Filaggrin , Claudin-1
Laboratory (LCS Biotech) conducted skin segmentation and barrier function tests of AHA, BHA, and PHA (Lactobionic Acid), iwas confirmed that PHA (Lactobionic Acid) had superior Biomarker expression and enhanced skin barrier compared to other Hydroxy Acids.
Human Clinical Test Result
Comparison of skin improvement rate with 2 weeks use of cream containing 3% BioLactobionic Acid compared to the control cream
Comparison of wrinkle improvement rate with 4 weeks use of cream containing 8% BioLactobionic Acid compared to the control cream
Human clinical test has confirmed that the test cream containing BioLactobionic Acid has moisturizing effect, exfoliation effect, TEWL reduction, and anti-wrinkle effect compared to the control cream (P&K Skin Research Center)
